Virtual kitchen assistants will act as chefs, helping with meal preparation, as well as keeping watch on timings. You’ll even be able to chat to them about everyday life so they’ll become much-loved companions.
When the kitchen is empty, drones will take to the air and shine strong UV beams to sterilise surfaces, cleaning areas people often forget such cupboard doors.
Bathroom GP will be able to discreetly take biological readings and screens for illnesses as you use the bathroom. Dr. Loo will screen you whilst you’re using the toilet for kidney function and glucose levels, whilst Dr Mirror tells you the results.
Beds will monitor your temperature, change from softer to ﬁrmer, provide ambient noise, and they’ll even nudge us into a different position if we’re snoring or to improve your sleeping position.
Waterless washing machines will be installed in homes. Customers will get their inefficient appliance replaced with an ultra water efficient washing machine using a bead system.
Tiny bug-sized bots will pick up crumbs and dirt every time a room is empty, so ﬂoors would stay looking cleaner for longer without the continuous vacuum noise.
We will be able to use invisibility cloaks to "disappear" ugly objects. The key to cloaking lies in the way the electromagnetic spectrum (including visible light) interacts with objects.
Kitchens will include 3D printers that can create food such as pizza, biscuits and pretzels.
For home aesthetics, fabrics will have the ability to change appearance, colours, patterns and textures enabled by intrinsic smart yarns.
A bio tank containing robotic ﬁsh will clean the dishes and turn the leftover food into biofuel, while ﬁltering the water as well.
A scanner will go through your hung clothes, ﬁnd the dirty spots and clean them so you always have fresh, clean clothes in your closet.
